( crowd cheering ) >> stephen:all right. what's next? how do i stop obama in 2016? >> you can't. as a black man in power who has nothing to lose.
yesterday said their decision was made at the last minute. and the storm was fresh in everybody's mind but sandy did not directly reelect president obama. hispanic americans did. breaking 71% for the president. despite all of that, mitt romney could have won the election had he recaptured momentum last weekend. it's like a sporting event. the team with the mo in the last few minutes of the game usually wins. but the romney campaign did nothing, zero, nothing in the last few days to jump start the governor. local campaigning is never enough. if mitt romney had a guy as smart as obama's chief strategist david axelrod, the governor would be celebrating tonight. talking points believes that by not emerging aggressively after sandy, romney cost himself the presidency. and if the election had been held 8 days earlier, the governor would have defeated barack obama. now, going forward, some folks are despairing today, mike ballinger who lives in west hartford, connecticut wrote: we have lost our american way of life. there is some truth to what mike believes. dennis miller has a similar take c
that. mitt romney has refused to take position on it. he hasn't even said no. >> ground game. everybody -- no matter how great campaign you ran if you don't get your supporters to the mols you don't win. you have been in ohio working alongside the romney get out to vote effort. how is it going? >> we've been about 25 different states over the past year. i will say, bonnie, i haven't seen the conservative base whether you call that tea party, whether you call it regular, more energized than i've seen in this election cycle. that certainly been true in ohio. on friday of this week there were over 20% people who were showing up for romney event, my understanding was the president's event that morning in ohio drew about 3,000. that is a huge difference. ground game comes out of those things, those people come to rallies, they go out do door knocking, phone banks. my understanding of folks on the ground in ohio is republicans have had a larger turn out, get out to vote effort there than they have ever had. >> you know why? first of all, romney is at wit's end, he's going in to those counties
define wealthy. i think everybody understands that there is an outline for framework. mitt romney said cap deductions, gave them an idea. said let's do this. they have to figure out a way to get around this. my big question, what role does paul ryan play in all of this. he's pretty far out there a national figure, said no new taxes and john boehner will have to try and lead some compromises in his own caucus with a new national leader. >> do you see compromise as possible? because of the fiscal cliff. >> here is the thing. in the olden days when i covered the congress, i used to say, they will end up doing the right thick. i no longer think that. i now believe they could all retreat into their corners, only thing that gives me hope it's in their own self-interest to get this done. >> it's in everyone's self interest. david, as you survey the landscape of the incoming congress, any likelihood that members will be able to come together, work with the president on immigration reform, climate change, tax reform, entitlement reform? >> i do, anderson. i'm increasingly optimistic we won't go
opportunity out here. and everybody laughs because that's real. and then when romney says, oh, yeah, this is the way ann and i dress at home, you know, those are the kinds of things that i think are great in a campaign. those were the finest hours for both of them. >> absolutely. >> thank you for being with us this morning. we love having you. kch h catch him at the stress factory club this weekend. but i still .

soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washington post," "everybody feels like they were a bunch of well meaning folks who were to use a phrase that governor romney coined to describe his opponent -- way in over their heads." plenty more republicans were more than willing to go on the record. >> the romney campaign did nothing -- zero -- nothing -- in the last few days to jump-start the governor. >> after that first debate, i don't know where that mitt romney went. i mean in the summertime, he was raising a lot of money and he was on lake winnipesaukee, he was having fun on the jet ski. >> when conservative commentator ann coulter defended romney, ingraham incredulously disagreed. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it is over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't fee
-deportation for undocumented immigrants. they would leave this country, go home, get in line with everybody else. >> that's correct. >> reporter: there were his comments about the 47%. but there were also turning points. his wife's appeal. >> i love you women! >> reporter: and romney's biggest moment, the first debate. >> you've been president four years. you've been president four years. you'd said you'd cut the deficit in half, it's now four years later. >> reporter: and there was self-devry case self-d rry self too. >> it's nice to finally wear what ann and i wear around the house. >> reporter: in the final days, a candid answer from ann, should the race not go their way. >> he will not run again. nor will i. >> reporter: living with ms, ann enduring the rigors of two presidential campaigns. last night, her husband promising a prayer for the president. >> ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america. >> reporter: and so the big question tonight, what's next for the governor? he has said in the last 24 hours, he hasn't much thought about t
thought you and i would go nuts and go chris matthews on everybody. >> i -- i am -- i was in despair. i am sad that america will never have the benefit of mitt romney. but there is always hope in america. but we will keep fighting. >> sean: i couldn't say it any better. next, bob woodward on how the liberal media put all of its resources on re-electing obama. what happened to holding politicians accountable? what does the loss mean for republicans? we will check in with our panel, coming up later tonight on the state of the this bible changed the world. i'm kirk cameron. four hundred years ago our forefathers risked their lives to bring this bible to the shores of america. because it contained the principals for economic liberty, political liberty and religious freedom. the 1599 geneva bible. it was the first complete english translation, complete with chapters, numbered verses and 300,000 utterly unique study notes. it actually came out before the king james version and because the government didn't authorize it, it was outlawed. but it was a bible by the people, for the people, the book
solve together. >> romney also spoke of bipartisan cooperation promising pat brady had of the illinois gop to also eco the same sentiment. we need a government we can afford and get a job creation going i think everybody needs to come together and do that and it should be serious policy discussion we should put politics aside for a while. >> republicans had scheduled a morning after victory party breakfast some of those who showed up also talked about healing and working together. we might be able to see some interesting things happen in washington d.c. between republicans and democrats to make that happen and i'm hoping in illinois we benefit as well. i think there has to be a move to the middle if you will how that gets done, your constituencies need to demand that appeared >> maybe this time healing can become a reality. >> i believe we can seize the future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggest, we are not as cynical as the pundits believe, we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions more than a collection of red states in blue states, we are
home and apply for legal residency in the united states, get in line with everybody else. >> juan gonzalez, your response about the significance of this and these approaches when it came to the election? >> he moniker that was attached to romney, much as the 47% remark, was the one in the general population that stuck with him and outraged folks. this idea that people would elect to self deport themselves was so absurd and was so clear that romney felt she kept hedging, even during the general election, to say he would move toward a humane immigration policy in the country. i think that was a critical -- it is not just a question of the undocumented, but every latino knows or does some in their family or someone close to them who is facing the threat of possible deportation because they are undocumented in this country. this is really an issue that doesn't just affect the immigrants, but the entire latino, more than 50 million latinos in the united states today. i think that really was the key issue. for instance, the latino support for obama increased from 67% in 2008, went to 71
chris matthews on everybody. >> i -- i am -- i was in despair. i am sad that america will never have the benefit of mitt romney. but there is always hope in america. but we will keep fighting. >> sean: i couldn't say it any better. next, bob woodward on how the liberal media put all of its resources on re-electing obama. what happened to holding politicians accountable? what does the loss mean for republicans? we will check in with our panel, coming up later tonight on the state of the g.o.p. i'm jessica and this is my emergen-c. keeping up with the kids is tough, so i drink emergen-c. with vitamin c for immune support and b vitamins for natural energy, i'm ready for whatever they get into. get your free sample at stay healthy and feel the good. get your free sample at ♪ ♪ hi dad. many years from now, when the subaru is theirs... hey. you missed a spot. ...i'll look back on this day and laugh. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.

are almost evenly he split representing a divided electorate, and the man tasked with bringing everybody together har harry reid is not interested in compromise. he said it's better to dance than fight, but he sung a different tune when candidate romney wanted to reach across the aisle on his claim that they would work with him on his agenda. reid said romney's fantasy that senate democrats will work with him to pass in very conservative agenda is laughable. if not the majority leader, who will emerge as a power player to help tackle the most pressing issues? fiscal cliff, anyone? sorry, steve. i know you hate that phrase. in the guest spot today helping us identify senators to depoll larize our senate is jimmy williams who worked with dick durb durbin. >> jimmy -- >> that's not easy. >> jimmy, so you heard harry reid's obstructionist mantra before the election. should we expect a softer harry reid to emerge after the election? >> harry reid was a boxer in college, so i think that tells you -- he was a capitol hill policeman before he was a united states senator and the majority leader.
-preservation they have got to get some kind of a grand bargain done. and everybody knows, wolf, everybody knows that it includes tax reform. mitt romney himself proposed a version of tax reform where you cap deductions for example. that's something that will automatically be on the table. so they just have to get over this huge issue of the tax cuts and then they can get to the larger macro issues of how do you avoid the fiscal cliff and start dealing with entitlements. >> that would require if you deal with the increased revenues through tax reform, it would require the president blinking on the increase in the tax rate for the wealthiest americans. >> and that's why i'm saying perhaps there's a way to redefine wealthy. maybe it's not $250,000. maybe it's $1 million. maybe it's $2 million. who knows. you know, i have to believe when you're staring at the cliff, there has got to be some way for them to avoid it. because they know the repercussions are not just in this country, they're global. they've got to figure it out. >> in our exit polls we asked what is your opinion of the obama administr
of mitt romney and most republican candidates. so on an issue where two-thirds of the electorate thinks you are wrong, the anti-abortion movement says the secret is that you should campaign more on what everybody thinks you're wrong about. the numbers get even worse for republicans among latinos. yes, on this issue specifically. where less than a third of latino voters say they agree with the dominant republican position on this issue. after the republicans won a record number of state legislature states in 2010 and a bunch of governorships too, republicans in those states, since the 2010 election, have just been focused on abortion, like never before. they enacted a record number of new anti-abortion laws, more than at any time since roe versus wade became the law of the land. the same thing happened at the federal level, as soon as republicans took control of the house, after the 2010 mid-term elections. hr-3, as in the house republican's third bill overall, their bill was an anti-abortion bill. they have also tried to ban abortion after a certain time limit in washington, d.c. they'v
had three or four days when everybody was obsessed with the super storm sandy. it's not necessarily that chris christie helped the president so much but the conversation changed from what seemed to be some momentum going for romney and it just halted. it just stopped completely while the country was focused in, understandably, on what was going on in new jersey and statin island and long island and elsewhere. >> right. all right. wolf, thank you for your insight, as always. so appreciated. great work on the election. i know you were probably very tired. you deserve lots of days off. >>> to our viewers, don't forget that wolf -- he doesn't take a break. he's amazing. he's going to be back on 4:00 eastern. one of the things he will probably talk about as well is the effect of the hispanic vote. it was a big factor in the republicans are going to have to look into that deeply. that's in "the situation room" of course here on cnn. ♪ ♪ ♪ hi dad. many years from now, when the subaru is theirs... hey. you missed a spot. ...i'll look back on this day and laugh. love. it's what makes a
everybody take their deductions at a 15% level, which is fairer of course, or what romney was talking about in the last few weeks. you have a cap on how much you can take deductions. the problem with all of that is as tax policy center and other policy centers have shown, that hits the middle class and the upper middle class more than it does the rich. figuring out how you can do this and yet shift the burdens were in effect have to be, if you are born to make it saleable and workable, is no easy task. >> the last couple of questions raised really a larger issue about the nature of the crisis of the deficit and debt stabilization over time. how big a problem it is? should it be the overwhelmingly number one priority for a long period of time to come? i am one of these people who believe what an old friend of ours, bob carr, premier of new south wales, and now the minister of foreign affairs said, don't worry about america, there is nothing wrong with united states that one of reasonable budget deal cannot solve. it is worth keeping in mind. we are probably on the road to economic recovery.
knows the opportunities that are there. he wants everybody to be able to take advantage of the opportunities. he cares about those people. mitt romney cares about those who, like himself, have been hugely successful. all they want is more, more, more for them and they don't care about other people who are getting started. it sums it up why president obama got 60% of the young vote. he deserves it. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! >>oh really? >>tax cuts don't create jobs. the golden years as the conservatives call them, we had the highest tax rates, and the highest amount of growth, and the highest amount of jobs. those are facts. >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! let's hear yours. politically direct means no b.s. just telling you what's going on in politics today. >>at the only on-line forum with a direct line to bill press. >>it's something i've been waiting for a long time. >>join the debat
these candidates. everybody looks great on paper. but it's only the man -- theater roosevelt talks about the man in the arena. and the man in the arena was mitt romney and he gave it his all. we can look back and say we should have done this or that but to suggest this could have easily been won if when had somebody else, i don't buy that. but you have to respond. when your other side says our strategy is to make the republican candidate unacceptable even to the points of knowing we are going to suppress the vote. we had a campaign strategy deliberately designed to so turn off people even if they disagreed with barack obama they could not bring themselves to vote for the other guy. megyn: fight back earlier. >> also we have a problem with latinos. this is the only group he got more votes from this time around than last time around. we need to do more with young people and the changing diversity of americans. president obama lost strengths among women. megyn: how do you recruit groups like that. >> you make certain you have people who represent those communities in leadership of your party. here
. here is jacki schechner. >> good morning, everybody. as of this hour florida is still counting votes from tuesday's election. and the president has won mitt romney has conceded the nation is moving forward. so what is the problem? usa today called it a combination of poor management lack of capacity and systemic dysfunction. the election supervisors are elected officials, so that's an issue, also miami dade management blames the ten-page complicated ballot for causing people to take as much as 40 minutes to fill it out. as many laws that were tried to pass this year to disenfranchise democratic voters it wasn't the legislation, but simply the long lines that held people up. that's mostly do to logistics beyond the law. former congress woman gabby giffords and her husband may be in court today facing the man who shot giffords killed six people as we faces sentencing. the struck a plea deal back in august, that gives him life in prison and spares the victims a long emotional trial. kelly will read a statement on behalf of the two of them, but the ap says now it i
wanted to address why i believe governor romney did not win. he will blatantly lied to our face and he was called out numerous times. everybody keeps saying that obama attacked him in the beginning, but i don't want to call that an attack. i want to call if he made the people wear. he give us the opportunity to choose what would be best for us. there will be making it seem like that is where they are. >> people are cutting the president down for the social security and all that. i am on disability. i am giving everything i got right. it is the insurance companies, not the president. the slack that i get is really uncalled for. if people would start going and making an effort to making the world better instead of trying to cut it down all the time, we might get somewhere. >> i can't believe that the american people did not vote for a man with a proven record. so what? he is rich. he knows what he is doing. he gave to charity, he cared about the american people, and the media has failed them. we need ask ourselves and we will find out what was his, you know, saying he did not know he was
and it will not get better. caller: have wanted to address what i believe romney did not win. i think people realize we did not want someone to just blame just lie to our face. was called out by obama numerous times. everybody says obama attacked him in the beginning with the ads but he made the people aware. he let us know who we were dealing with some eight -- dealing with from the gate. the republican party needs to stop pointing figures - fingers at obama. we are where we are because they cannot come together as one and help the people of america. caller: everybody is cut in the president down for the people being on social security and all that. i broke my back 10 years ago and i am on disability. daughter depend on that. i would give up everything now if i could get a job. it is not the president, it is the insurance companies that these companies have that will not hire me because i am to have a risk. when i go down the street and the people that know me, the slack i get, it is uncalled for. if people would just start -- going and making an effort to making the world better instead of trying
's not going to get better. >> well, i want to address why i believe romney did not win. i think that the people have realized that we don't want someone to blatantly lie to her face. he was called out by obama numerous times. everybody keeps saying that obama attacked him in the beginning with the ads. but i don't want to call it attacking. i wanted to be called he made people aware. people need -- and the republican party needs to stop pointing fingers at obama. we are where we are because we cannot come together as one. >> i have been listening to a lot of people tonight. i am on disability. my daughter and wife depend on that. it is not the president commits the insurance company for these companies things -- it is really uncalled for. >> i am saddened today. i can't believe that the american people did not vote for a man with a proven record. i think we will find out what was said. people have close ties. >> i'm a guy that started off as a liberal four years ago. over the years, but we have seen here is the constitution -- the president has been acting in an unconstitutional
to look at his record to see he had the most conservative record of everybody in the primary. they didn't like -- they didn't like his style. >> i think that's part of the reason anyway why mitt romney -- why conservatives never fell in love with mitt romney because he never went that far. i think they knew he was more moderate than he was letting on. and also that he did say things like the president has a good family. he's a good man. i just disagree with him. i don't think conservatives -- and you tell me -- felt like he savaged the president enough. like he didn't bring out the knives sharp enough after the president. >> mitt romney? >> yeah. like it was never personal enough. >> well, i just remember talking to people very close to the president who said, who are they most afraid of? what candidate would they be most afraid of who could really give president obama a run for his money? it was jon huntsman. i guess republicans don't like winning either. i'm serious. >> the responsibility lies with the candidate to pull voters to him. and i will say in mitt romney's case -- >> yeah. >
